Principles of the Teaching of Bahá'u'lláh,
Explained by 'Abdu'l-Bahá in Paris

Here are, very briefly explained, some of the principles of Bahá’u’lláh.

In short, it behoves us all to be lovers of truth. Let us seek her in every season and in every country, being careful never to attach ourselves to personalities. Let us see the light wherever it shines, and may we be enabled to recognize the light of truth no matter where it may arise. Let us inhale the perfume of the rose from the midst of thorns which surround it; let us drink the running water from every pure spring.

('Abdu'l-Bahá: Paris Talks, Pages: 133 - 134)
